This stamp was incredibly difficult to stamp. It was too small with too much detail. I love this company's stamps but this one has issues. I could only find one card with this image on SCS and that one dated back to 2009. I enlarged the image and colored with copics and pencils. Matted it on Reich shine. Thank you for stopping by.

A SPECTACULAR vintage Christmas card, Nancy. It is easy to see what you were talking about.........that it has a LOT of fine detail....so smart to enlarge it. Your coloring is gorgeous....and such a sweet image. An enchanting card.

Oh Nancy, I am just sitting here (instead of leaving for work) admirering your design and coloring skills. This little angel's skin just glows. The composition of this card is perfection. It was well worth the struggle.
This is amazing! Love your angel and how you fit her on there using out of the box technique! Beautiful coloring and matted so wonderfully, too!
I have a few Crafty Individuals stamps; love them, but for some reason don't use them! I have a lot of stamps like that! LOL

Nancy, I can see why you like this company! It is a gorgeous delicate stamp. I also understand how you can spend hours coloring! To get that soft look, especially on the skin is amazing! My 15 minute color jobs do NOT turn out like this and can really see the difference! Very well done, my friend! tfs
